Shopify Unite is the annual gathering of Shopify agencies, and tech partners. The event gives the Shopify team an opportunity to update the ecosystem on new features, new direction, and new opportunities, as well as provides a platform for Shopify's partners to ask questions and give feedback.
We were lucky enough to sponsor the largest happy hour at Shopify Unite 2019, alongside JustUno, and we were able to meet so many of you face to face. Thank you to everyone who came out, we can't wait to continue working with you this year.
(I posted a more in-depth summary of our experience at Shopify Unite 2019 on Twitter, which you can find here.)
